Security and confidentiality of your details
ROBEL makes provisions for guaranteeing the security of your personal details. Your data is diligently protected against loss, destruction, corruption, manipulation and against unauthorised access, disclosure and dissemination. The technologies used for this are state-of-the-art and are regularly maintained. All our employees, who in the course of their work are using personal details, are bound to confidentiality and are obliged to handle data processing systems correctly in accordance with the German Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Use of your personal details
All personal details collected by us on the ROBEL website (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) are processed for the sole purpose of supporting you individually, transmitting product information or submitting service offers. ROBEL assures that your details are treated as confidential according to the prevailing data protection regulations. You decide whether or not you want to give us this data when registering or making an enquiry. These details are relevant to your enquiry, but are given to us by you on a voluntary basis.
Your enquiry is sent via the contact form on this website to the relevant ROBEL country representation for further processing and a copy forwarded to the ROBEL head office in Germany. We assure that your personal details are not passed on to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so.
However, we will neither sell nor otherwise market your personal details to third parties! We do not sell any user names or e-mail addresses to other companies that send you unsolicited advertising material or mail.
We use e-mail for services associated with information about our products. In theses cases, we retain the e-mail address in our documentation.
We store and process your data solely as part of the obligations we have to fulfil. Should we wish to use your details for purposes above and beyond this, for example, to inform you about current offers or exhibition dates, we will only do so if we have obtained express permission from you. You can withdraw from this consent and further use of your data informally at any time.
If requested ROBEL will inform you in writing as to whether and what personal details we store about you. Despite our efforts to keep data accurate and up to date, if the wrong information is stored, we shall amend it at your request. Your consent is a pre-condition for the use of your data. If you later find that you no longer agree with this, please let us know informally so that we can arrange to have your data deleted or blocked.
